The top three revenue generating end-user segments for the global foundry service market are discussed below:

Global foundry service market by communications

The segment was valued at USD 29.87 billion in 2015 and is expected to reach USD 43.62 billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 7.87% during the forecast period.

Technavio analysts expect the segment to maintain its dominance in the global foundry service market during the forecast period due to increased adoption of communication devices such as smartphones and tablets. The launch of innovative, strategically priced products by vendors such as Samsung Electronics and Apple has made communications the major contributing segment in the market. After 2017, the segment is likely to witness fluctuation and subsequent fall in the growth rate due to the cyclical nature of the global semiconductor industry.

Global foundry service market by consumer electronics

The segment was valued at USD 8.1 billion in 2015 and is expected to reach USD 13.12 billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 10.13% during the forecast period.

The consumer electronics segment includes essential home devices like refrigerators, ACs, TVs, home theaters, and washing machines, as well as wearable devices such as smartwatches and fitness gadgets. The segment, which accounted for a revenue share of 15.43% in 2015, is likely to maintain position in the global foundry market during the forecast period. “The high demand for smart, efficient, and power-saving household equipment compels consumer electronics manufacturers to deliver high-end household products. The products are integrated with improved semiconductor equipment, capable of delivering high performance with more functionalities and reduced power consumption at a low cost,” says Chetan.

Global foundry service market by computer

The segment was valued at USD 5.3 billion in 2015 and is expected to reach USD 6.36 billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 3.71% during the forecast period.

The consumption of semiconductor ICs in this segment is declining due to increasing demand for communication devices such as smartphones and tablets. However, the segment will sustain with a nominal growth rate till 2019, due to the emergence of hybrid laptops and all-in-one (AIO) PCs in the market. The market will decline after 2019 due to thoughtful spending by developed countries, stiff competition from tablet manufacturers, and increasing penetration of phablets in developing countries.

Top vendors in the global foundry service market

  • GLOBALFOUNDRIES
  • Samsung Semiconductor
  • SMIC
  • UMC
  • TSMC

In 2015, the global foundry service market was dominated by the major vendors such as GLOBALFOUNDRIES, Samsung Semiconductor, SMIC, UMC, and TSMC that contributed almost 85% to the market. TSMC alone accounted for a market share of more than 55%. This is because most of the fabless companies want to share long-term mutual agreements with the major foundries as they guarantee reliability and quality in production, and they have the capital necessary to update their production line to the latest technology constantly.
